The TNT KaTropa have sent import Jeremy Tyler home after the flagship team of the MVP Group lost their first game of the conference to Alaska, 110-100 last Sunday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.
Tyler’s agent, Sheryl Reyes, announced the latest development on her Twitter account.
“Unfortunately with the turn out of events TNT will replace Jeremy Tyler .. that was his last game .. thanks Jeremy we wish you all the best,” wrote Reyes.

The 26-year old former NBA player averaged a measly 12.25 points in 4 games on top of 13.25 rebounds.
TNT is scheduled to take on Blackwater on Friday, May 18 and will possibly be reinforced by either Tyler or a stand-in import pending the availability of original choice Joshua Smith.
The 6-foot-9 Smith powered the KaTropa all the way to the Finals of the same conference last season but lost in 6 games to the San Miguel Beermen led by Best Import awardee Charles Rhodes.
Smith is coming off a stint in Japan and sources say he could make his debut during the team’s game against Columbian on June 1.
